Districts and communities represented in the Hijuelas de Michoacán de Ocampo Collection

The map shows 228 communities in the Mexican state of Michoacán that participated in the liberal privatization of indigenous land holdings during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, officially known as the reparto de tierras. It also displays the state's district boundaries during the latter half of the reparto, based on Manuel Orozco y Berra’s 1899 map.
